First, We went to Coorg on May 18 till 21. We stayed in both Club Mahindra and a home stay booked from coorgholidayinn.com website.
First about homestay. Nice home but no other major attractions. We had breakfast included in the home stay, but the homestay owner was asking if he need to provide breakfast. Also the menu he had mentioned just scared us from not taking it and we said no breakfast and he was more than happy to provide just coffee in the morning.
The rooms is hot in the night and we definately missed A/C. There were insects coming in at night if we left the windows open. Morning wheather upto 9 am is good.
Overall at 1500 per night , if you are looking for a basic bed, you can opt for homestay. I won't recommend homestay for family holidays. This is my view.
For few additionals bugs we can get resorts like Club mahindra.
I am not a member of club mahindra and went with a member and stay there. Since the resort is closed for out siders till June 8 or 15, u need to be accompained by a member.
If you are traveling outside block dates (May - jun 15) , then please call some members who will be will to sell rooms for as low as Rs 3000 per night. Much better deal than Rs 1500 for a home with no swiming pool, no family activities etc etc. Please search QUICKR or other sites where there are people who are selling rooms in sterling and club mahindra resorts.
Coming to resort, cannot complain. Rooms are good. Green lush sorrounding. Pool was great but with a rule that u need to enter the pool using syntetic or nylon shorts. They also sell those at resort shop for Rs 200+.. ladies cost 600+ :)
Food was priced at 300+,450+,600 for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had all 3 and not much to complain. Ala carte is high priced. Not much food option outside the resort though u cook.
We had dedicated vehicle so had food at neel sagar which was good for veg.
Kids activities was good, We tried cricket and loved it. Rooms with balcony was good for a evening drink / chat.
Overall good exp in the resort.
coming back to Coorg, I think our timing was bad. It was hot and we were sweating at Dubare. No elephants bathing after 10.30 am. ONly 2 elephants for show off.
Did not go to talacavery as we were told there is nothing much. Did not have time for nagerhole as well.
Raja seat is nice in evening. But was very disappointed with overall coorg wheather.
I heard Aug is good for coorg. Club Mahindra can be enjoyed all year round i guess.
